At the last meeting at the Crowne Plaza in 2014, President-elect Kian Ameli, with first lady Anna looking proudly on asked club members in attendance what they would like to do during his term.
He expressed his excitement to get the ball rolling in anticipation of ascending the throne in July 2015. Never one to waste time, he plans to meet on July 1st, so he doesn’t miss a beat.
We presented Barbara with a special gratuity in recognition for all the special things she does for us throughout the year. Thanks Barb for everything you do to make our meetings so special!
Turnout was light, with Prez Karen conducting a do-it-yourself sleep deprivation test… so far 36 hours and counting… and Edi Birsan suffering from a bad case of the flu. However, both Lora and Laura were in attendance. Lora S did a great job with the 4-Way Test.
The highlight of the evening was Concord High School’s Ladies First Choral Group. These young women, including Interact Co-President Jessica Daynes, did an exceptional job for us. They sang their hearts out. If you weren’t in the holiday spirit after their performance, there may not be any hope for you. After their performance, Prez Karen presented director Mr. Emigh with a check in the amount of $250 to support their choral programs.
Thanks to our Concord High School Interact Co-Presidents and our exchange student Angelina Zywert, a total of 37 new Interactors were singed up for our Concord High Club. The “Club Rush” which was held on September 24th was aided my cookies purchased by Club Adviser Jeff Kasper, based on the success of the popsicles at Carondalet last week!
Please welcome our exchange student from Poland, Angelina Zywert! Angelina is sponsored by the Pleasant Hill Rotary Club, who was nice enough to allow us to participate by hosting their student! Angelina will be attending Concord High School and will be a member of our Interact Club there.
She will be coming to club from time to time, so make sure you say hello!
One of our Camp ROYAL scholarship recipients, Jessica Daynes from Concord High School, visited the club meeting on June 4th.
Jessica is a junior at Concord High School and a member of the Interact Club we sponsor. She was recently elected as the Student Body President for the next school year as well. Jessica’s parents also joined us for her presentation.
She gave an eloquent talk to the members about her hopes as to what she will gain from her time at the camp. Looking past her senior year, she plans to go to college and receive her medical degree.
